Kershaw 1660GLD Ken Onion Leek Assisted Flipper Knife 3" Plain Blade, 24K Gold Plated, Stainless Steel Handles
KS1660: 1660GLD Leek 24K Plated
The 24K plated Kershaw Leek just may be the ideal EDC. With its 3-inch blade, the Leek is a good-sized knife, but not too big. The slim design makes it easy to carry and its razor-sharp blade of high-performance Sandvik 14C28N means it can take care of a full range of cutting tasks.
The blade is a modified drop-point, so it's a good slicing knife, while the slim tip gives it piercing capability and the ability to do detailed work. Like other "Onion" knives, the Leek features the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system.
Whether you're left-handed or right-handed, just pull back on the flipper and the Leek's blade is ready to go to work. In addition to its 14C28N blade, this Leek features a handle of pure stainless steel that gives it a clean, sleek look. For confident blade use, a super-secure frame lock keeps the blade locked during use and a Tip-Lock slider locks the blade closed when folded. The pocket clip can be configured for tip-up or tip-down carry and the handle is drilled to accept a lanyard.
Note: This is not the original Gold Leek that was produced by Kershaw in the early 2000s. Instead, this is a current production standard 1660 Leek that has been gold plated by a third party.
